It’s remarkable how polarized people can get while objecting to political polarization.

Conditioned to believe that there is no longer any fundamental difference between the Left and Right, a reluctant awakening that the polarities of Left and Right remain persistent and represent real values continues to come as a shock to many.

Far from merely being an issue of semantics, the necessity of polarization is key to winning any political struggle. In this respect, the Left has the clear advantage.

Those struggling to find a place for freedom on a fictional “political spectrum” defined by the Left are clearly a lost constituency, lacking any identity or polarity by which to identify, organize, and unify. Given that “conservatives” no longer represent the Right, the fear of being labeled “right wing” coupled with a rejection of polarization has led many to destructive political alignments with anarchy and libertarianism.

Of course, all of this is to the advantage of the tyrannical Left, whose political victories have primarily been on the battlefield of definitions and propaganda. Until those who value freedom proudly recognize and proclaim their “Rightful” place on the political polarity, their struggle to be seen or heard will continue to be an unnecessarily difficult one.

The fact that freedom has always been Just Right for humanity is why that’s the only polarity where it can be found.

“Just follow the science” has been the incessant refrain of those pushing everything from climate change to dangerous injections. Because their claims with regard to these sinister objectives are in conflict with reality and reason, it should not be surprising that they have abandoned the most fundamental of all the sciences: epistemology.

Derived from the Greek ‘epistēmē’ (knowledge) and ‘logos’ (discourse), epistemology is defined as “the science that investigates the origin, nature, methods, and limits of knowledge.”

Ultimately, all true science involves a search for knowledge and truth. Every science therefore rests upon its own epistemology to validate the truth or falsehood of its knowledge obtained against the test of reality.

Unlike the physical world, the political world is a world of abstractions (left and right, conservative and liberal, capitalism and communism, tyranny and freedom, etc). Politics is about ideas, concepts, and theories in conflict. But as with the physical sciences, if those concepts are flawed, tragic consequences may result.

For those on the Right, one of the most destructive concepts to the cause of freedom and individualism is the anti-concept of “polarization,” along with a dismissal of the terms “left” and “right” as being no longer distinguishable. Continue reading »

If we want to celebrate peace on earth this Christmas, then perhaps we should be celebrating capitalism and everything it represents.

Peace is not simply the absence of war. It is also the absence of any form of tyranny. It is a condition that arises whenever the use of force and fraud are prohibited in human relationships.

There is only one form of governance that fits this description – an unknown ideal that continues to be so even as the world desperately seeks a solution to the problems that it would solve.

Capitalism is a social system based on the recognition of individual rights, including property rights, in which all property is privately owned,” explained Ayn Rand in Capitalism – The Unknown Ideal. “In a capitalist society, all human relationships are voluntary.”

In the latest attempt to destroy the concept of capitalism, Klaus Schwab has introduced the anti-concept of “stakeholder capitalism” in which we will all “own nothing and be happy.”

Of course, the reality is that capitalism is a system in which each individual owns what is rightfully earned, and where happiness is up to each individual to pursue and achieve.

The world is constantly at war, elaborated Rand, “because the dominant political philosophy is statism. Statism – in fact and in principle – is nothing more than gang rule. It is not a system conducive to brotherhood, security, cooperation, and peace.”

Our understanding of the world and everything around us is based on the definition of the words and concepts that we use. If those definitions are incorrect, then so too is our understanding of the world. Unless we come to view capitalism in a way that is Just Right, peace on earth will forever remain an unknown ideal.

Thinking rationally requires accurate and precise definitions without which thinking cannot be valid or effective. Since destroying the ability to think is key to the advance of any form of tyranny, this requires the use of anti-concepts – normal words with twisted definitions that do not correspond to reality in any way.

“Misuse of language is the means by which the Marxist cult of communism has done the most serious injury to intelligence,” wrote Isabel Paterson in her monumental work, The God of the Machine.

“Marxist terminology reduces verbal expression to literal nonsense on the basis of fact and usage; the phrase ‘dictatorship of the proletariat’ is like ‘the roundness of a triangle,’ a contradiction in terms. It has no meaning. This is specifically the language of fools; for the deficiency which is indicated by the word ‘fool’ is the incapacity to understand categories and the relation of things and qualities.”

In other words, everyone on the Left is a fool or has been ‘fooled’ into believing something that is not so.

Perhaps the most foolish concept to surface of late has been the contradictory “round triangle” concept called “stakeholder capitalism.” Described by the king of fools Klaus Schwab as a system in which we will “own nothing and be happy,” his twisted definition is as far from anything to do with capitalism as one can get.

In the realm of political concepts, the Left represents tyranny while the Right represents freedom. So it should not be surprising that the Left projected its own evil on to the Right, by falsely claiming its own ideology of fascism to be “right wing.” This has destroyed the ability of those who accept this lie to even be able to think about the reality of the choices that face them. Believing that they have no choice but the lesser of two evils at two ends of an imaginary non-existent “political spectrum,” many on the Right are blinded from making any choice at all, much to the delight of the Left.

Until more people come to understand what’s Just Right and what distinguishes it from everything Left, Word War 3 may soon no longer just be a war of words.

787 – The dictatorship of the primitive | Salim Mansur

 Comments Off on 787 – The dictatorship of the primitive | Salim Mansur

In an effort to describe and explain the madness forcing various versions of a “green agenda” upon us, our guest Salim Mansur recently found himself drawn to a series of essays originally compiled in Ayn Rand’s 1971 book “The New Left: The Anti-Industrial Revolution.” (re-released in 1999 as “Return of the Primitive” with additional essays by Peter Schwartz on the enduring legacy of the Left.)

“There is something fundamentally primitive in this malady, this profound sickness that has overtaken Western man,” laments Salim. “It was astounding. Everything that Rand wrote about is what we’re living through. This is not a new debate.”

Drawing upon Rand’s symbolic comparison of the Greek gods Apollo and Dionysus with the Right and Left respectively, Salim is led unavoidably to the conclusion that the making of civilizations is an individual undertaking, not a collective one.

In the light of that reality, the collectivist wave now enveloping the West can itself be understood to be both the cause and symptom of civilization’s collapse. Continue reading »

Actions by Leftists over the years can only lead one to conclude that they are members of a death cult.

Attempts to describe the Left have generally been in economic terms: socialist, fascist, communist, Fabian, etc., but if we go back to 1969 we discover that one philosopher, Ayn Rand, described the Left in a way that stands to this day as accurate and even prophetic.

In her book The New Left: The Anti-Industrial Revolution, which was re-released as Return of the Primitive we find an essay that compared the Left to the Greek god Dionysus—the god of insanity, frenzy, and drunkenness and the Right with the god Apollo the “averter of evil,” the god of light, truth, education, and reason.

Rand uses two events of that year, the launch of Apollo 11 and the music festival near Woodstock, to startlingly juxtapose those two elements in society which seem forever at odds with each other—man’s lofty rational nature and his baser bestial nature.

Salim Mansur joins Robert Vaughan to discuss Rand’s insight into the fundamental nature of man and, in particular, the insanity of the Left.

Apparently, the Left was never adequately immunized against Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS), the political virus that infected Democrats, globalists, the deep state, and the fake news media the first time Trump rose to power. Now the latest variant has emerged, a clear sign that Trump must once again be on the rise.

For example, Carleton University professor and journalist Andrew Cohen in an August 19 editorial “Right follows script after Mar-a-Lago search” wrote “The right exploded. They screamed, they seethed, they snarled. The words were not just shrill, they were terrifying. At times, they encouraged violence. These are the new Republican rules of order in public debate. Rush to judgment. Ignore facts. Enter shooting. Empty your arsenal. Deny. Attack. Restraint is no virtue. Insanity is no vice.”

And then there was American philosopher, author, and podcast host Sam Harris, whose TDS infection has exposed a moral vacuum devoid of any principle or values whatever.

While openly citing evidence demonstrating Biden’s corruption (but offering none regarding Trump), Harris argued “Whatever the scope of Joe Biden’s corruption is… it is infinitesimal compared to the corruption we know Trump is involved in.” This, after proudly proclaiming that he “would not have cared” if Hunter Biden had “the corpses of children in his basement.” Continue reading »
